Culinary and bittersweet apples are harvested fully ripe and stored for up to one month in porous plastic or wooden boxes. The sugar content increases as the apples age, which means more sugar to convert into alcohol during fermentation. The apples are then washed and milled to a pulp before the juice is pressed out. Historically, milling was done in a circular stone trough with a rotating wheel drawn by a horse. These days modern shredders are used, but the end result is the same鈥攑ulp that can be pressed into juice.The pulp is then pressed and mashed to capture the juice. Back in colonial days, straw was used to contain the pulp during pressing. Today, electric-hydraulic 鈥渞ack and cloth鈥?presses are used to press pulp into juice. Wine yeast is added to the juice, which then goes through a lengthy fermentation process in which the sugar is converted to alcohol. During this time, the cider is wood aged, which adds subtle spice and vanilla notes.
